bare-boned and crazy

Army Tests Fighting 'Bot - some people obviously need to watch Terminator again. This particular droid of death has the relatively unthreatenging name of MULE (Multifunction Utility Logistics and Equipment). Slightly less cuddly is it's big brother - Crusher. Obviously they ain't no pansies at DARPA. One thing is for certain though: giant, killer robots will always be cool.

Fighter-controlled jet is tested
- More Skynet-esqe silliness.

Man I'm starting to hate copyright laws ... do us all a favour people, and pick up a copy of Dean Baker's The Conservative Nanny State. It's even downloadable on the internet for free (free as in the author is happy for you to do it), though I'm too lazy to chase down the link for you.
